Folksonomy – Jargon for today

June 4, 2010 , , , ,

Officially: More commonly known as a tag they are keywords, normally allocated by the author, that identify what topic or category an element on a website could sit under. These keywords are used in searches to find related content across the web or within a website. If folksonomies are made public, web-based book marking services are able to index them.

Unofficially: Funky name for a tag. It’s a mashup of folks and taxonomy.

Wikily: Folksonomy on Wiki

Visually:

That’s ‘taxonomy’ you great Baboon, not ‘taxidermy’.
